Swords, and the People Who Love Them

NetSword is a discussion group for "swordsmen, sword smiths, armorers, weapons makers, collectors of swords, re-enactors, historians, and enthusiasts" who wish to discuss various topics concerning weapons and warfare during the Middle Ages through the Renaissance. The concentration is mostly on medieval swords and the weapons of European cultures, but there are other forums as well, including the history of weapons, fighting techniques, artifacts and events surrounding the weapons, and other weapon types used in warfare from Western and other cultures. There is a new forum called the Archaeology of Weapons which delves into weaponry of earlier times.
